March 2020 Newsletter

Happy March!

Here is what is happening at the museum this month:

Coronavirus and Flu Season

We are monitoring the situation and following the advice of the local health authorities. Additionally, we have increased our cleaning protocol. As a reminder, we will post closure information on our Facebook and Instagram pages as soon as we know about the closures.

With that said, we do ask caregivers to use their best judgement when planning a visit to Wonderworks. If your child or caregiver has a cough or fever, please consider visiting another time. We also ask visitors to use the hand sanitizer at the front desk and wash their hands in the bathroom as needed.

Spring Break Hours

We will be open all of Spring Break- March 23 – 28! Our hours will be:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
9:30am -12:30pm
***CLOSED for lunch 12:30-1pm****
1-4:30pm

Saturday: 9:30am-1:00pm

We will also be running membership specials during spring break. If you need to renew your membership, please let us know during your visit.

MOD Fundraiser

Join us at MOD Pizza in The Dalles, on the last day of Spring Break, to get a quick, easy, and delicious meal AND support Wonderworks at the same time! Help us to continue to provide our services to the children of The Dalles and surrounding areas by dining in at MOD Pizza on Sunday, March 29th! We hope to see you there!

Please RSVP at our event link, as well: https://www.groupraise.com/events/13248.

Some tips from MOD:
–RSVP on the Event’s Meal Page: RSVPing is super easy, plus it lets the group organizer and restaurant get a better idea of the turnout!
–Show Up: Once you’ve committed, come show your support! Bring friends too–even if they haven’t RSVPed online. In a hurry? Some restaurants may include take-out orders as well! However, be sure to clarify this with the organizer beforehand.
–Be Mindful: Please remember that for every GroupRaise fundraiser you are treated as a regular restaurant customer. The Bonus: a percentage of your meal goes to a worthy cause!
–Inform The Cashier/Server That You’re A Supporter: The restaurant only counts sales from supporters during the specified time frame. Let your server know you’re a supporter to make sure your check is counted towards your group.
–Have Fun! Chow down on delicious food, chat with your friends, and have a good laugh! Who knew changing the world could be so easy?

The Board has approved the 2020 calendar of planned closures and have posted it on our website here. We will also post reminders on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Wonderworks Board
